National Museum of Australia acquires two paintings from Metropolis show

We're proud to announce that the National Museum of Australia has acquired two indigenous paintings from our October 2012 exhibition: Tjala Arts, Tjungu Palya and Ernabella Arts: Paintings from the APY Lands of far northern South Australia.

Alison Munti Riley's painting Seven Sisters and Sallyanne Roberts' Kuru Ala were selected to be part of the Songlines ARC Project which is an Anangu initiative and collaboration between the National Museum of Australia and the Australian National University.

The Songlines Project aims to map the Kungkarangkalpa (Seven Sisters) and Ngintaka (Perentie Lizard) songlines across the Martu, Ngaanyatjarra, Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara Lands.

This recognition is very positive for Metropolis Gallery. Bringing quality exhibitions to Geelong from important Aboriginal Art Centres is an exciting part of our exhibition calendar.


PUT IT IN THE CALENDAR: Artists from Tjala Arts will be exhibiting again at Metropolis Gallery in October this year.

Geelong Picture Framers at Metropolis Gallery

Geelong Picture Framers is a busy custom-framing workshop located upstairs at Metropolis Gallery. We specialise in the conservation framing of paintings and works on paper, sentimental family treasures and memorabilia. We stretch canvases and also frame everything from posters and paintings to football jumpers and other 3D objects.

We’ll help select a frame that not only enhances the work: it’s important that the frame, matt, backing board and glass are going to help preserve it for many years to come.

Geelong Picture Framers turn your pictures into art!
